POLLUTEC HORIZONS 2013, PARIS, FRANCE: As Canada enjoys a $350 billion “infrastructure supercycle” over the next five years, the Ontario Clean Technology Alliance – a collective of regional and municipal economic development organizations across Ontario – is attending Pollutec Horizons 2013 in Paris.

The Alliance is inviting clean technology investments from around the world while shining a light on an $80 million win from Swiss-based ABB Ltd., the leading power and automation technology group, and its Ontario consortium partner Bondfield Construction.

The two partners have won an order from Canadian Solar Solutions to supply a 100-megawatt (MW) turnkey photovoltaic (PV) solar project for the Grand Renewable Energy Park in Ontario. The project is in turn part of a $5 billion investment by Samsung Renewable Energy and partners to create a green energy cluster of wind and solar power, sources with the capacity to generate 1,369 MW of renewable energy.

The first of these developments includes a 100 MW photovoltaic (PV) power plant and a 150 MW wind farm. Canadian Solar Solutions is the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor for the plant.
